A happy snowman

Hi everyone!

Hope you had a fantastic weekend and a great start of the week. We had some beautiful weather again here this weekend and a record high on monday. The kids really enjoyed playing outside. So no complaints here! Just hoping it will last a little longer.

It's time for another challenge over at Digital Tuesday. The lovely Amy is our hostess and she wants us and you to use some of that never used stash that we have in our collection. Thank you for this challenge Amy, as I have been waiting to use this designer paper and the snowman for some time now it just never happened (until now!).


The snowman image is from Sassy Cheryl, I bought it sometime in August I believe but never used it. It's been colored with Derwent Coloursoft Pencils and blended with baby oil.

The Designer paper is from S.E.I ( double sided, "glitzmas collection"), I had picked up a couple of sheets 2 or 3 months ago at a local stamping store and haven't used any of it yet either. These 2 things immediately came to mind when I saw what the challenge was.

The card is kept pretty simple, the sketch is an old one from Mojo Monday. I embellished with just a few punched out snowflakes (Martha Stewart Punch), some grosgrain ribbon and stickles glitter. I also used an old Stampin Up stamp from the set "itty bitty background" around the image. The sentiment is also from Stampin up.

Here's a closeup at the snowman.
Here are some other challenges I am entering this to:
I hope you'll join us in this fun challenge. As usual we have an amazing sponsor, this week Dustin Pike is back offering 3 digis from his store to one lucky winner!

And just a reminder, if you have any winter/christmas Penny Black stamps, I'd love if you join us at the November Penny Black @ All sorts challenge with the theme of "it's beginning to look a lot like christmas". Some amazing prizes up for grabs there!

Have a great day!
Ellie.
